After I retired in 2019 a buddy and I took 8 days to ride from San Diego to Fort Bragg, California on our 1200GS "Adventure" bikes. It was traveling in a very different manner than I am accustomed to. No dinner reservations or hotel reservations, using phone apps each day to accomplish both.

Yeah, we stayed in some cool places by accident along the way. And I got this shot of a lighthouse off of California "1".
I believe that is Pigeon Point Lighthouse, not far from me and I've gone by it and stopped there many times over the years. It's a nice spot, especially if the winds aren't too strong. Sounds like a great trip.

I think you are exactly correct now that you mention the name. Another view and of course the obligatory photo through the Redwood. I'm on the blue GS.

After months of unseasonably hot and dry weather, fall - and some much-needed rain - has finally come to Southern Oregon. Last week we had our first early morning rain shower in what seemed like years. When I got out of bed and stepped out of my back door - this is what I saw---

It hailed just as we were putting our scoots in the garage after a sunset ride. Ping-ball-sized ice would have hurt!


This was a smaller sample that had a period of wet growth after its initial formation.


Ping-pong anyone?

One even sees Buddha hanging out next to la Muerte

Ah.... van life porn. No matter how many pictures of Westfalia vans I see, I'm still in love.

I took my driver's test in 1970 in our family's 1970 VW Campmobile. I loved that thing.

Love the picture.

I often stop by the ocean on my bike ride home. Yesterday, I saw this wildfire emerging. It's about 25 miles away. It's still uncontrolled and burnt about 60 acres in about 24 hours.

I also saw a Dolphin pod of about 12 individuals feeding just offshore. I usually only see them about once a year. Got a a few shots on a video but they were relatively small in the frame so I won't bother posting them here.

Thanks Steve, apparently we have more in common than rural Pennsylvania. I took my drivers test in 1971, one day after I turned 16. Not in a Volkswagen but my mom's 1968 Javelin SST with 4 speed manual.
